New York: Astronomers have detected an organic molecule in the
atmosphere of a Jupiter-sized planet, a breakthrough which they claim
will help in identifying signs of life outside our solar system.
Using the Hubble Space Telescope, they discovered the
carbon-containing molecule methane on HD 189733b, a planet orbiting a
star located 63 light years away in the Vulpecula constellation.

prebiotic chemistry — the chemical reactions considered necessary to
form life. “This is a crucial stepping stone to eventually
characterising prebiotic molecules on planets where life could exist,”
